Entry requirements

Note: Admission requirements for non-programme students usually also include admission requirements for the programme and threshold requirements for progression within the programme, or corresponding.

Prerequisites

Fluid mechanics and Heat transfer

Intended learning outcomes

The aim of this course is to give the students wider knowledge of Energy Systems Analysis. When passed the students will know how different energy systems are designed, how crude oil, coal and such resources are used for power and heat generation. They also know about renewable and sustainable energy resources such as bio-fuel and solar energy generation. Further, they can describe how electricity is distributed and economic terms for this. Students will also be familiar with district heating grids and other forms of systems normally utilized by a municipality.

Course content

Power generation in the form of condenser heating plants, combined heat and power generation, heat production plants, gas turbine plants. The diesel process, nuclear power plants, different heat pumps and absorption cooling. District heating facilities such as the network, pipes and distribution within a building. Renewable energy sources and their environmental impact. External costs, exergy and policy instruments.

Teaching and working methods

The course is given in the form of lectures, project work and a visit at a real-world production plant.
